This novel/memoir is based on the author's own story. After Pearl Harbor, little Marie Mitsui's typical life in San Francisco is upended. Her family and thousands of others of Japanese heritage are interned in camps. Living conditions are harsh and the treatment is unfair. Told from a child's perspective, The Little Exile deftly conveys Marie's innocence, wonder, fear, and outrage.
